1 Review

Langman's Essential Medical Embryology is the ideal text for medical and health professions education programs that are shortening and condensing their coverage of embryology. The book combines concise but thorough descriptions with over 400 full-color illustrations, mostly taken from the renowned Langman's Medical Embryology. Emphasis is placed on illustrating development, with only the necessary amount of supporting text, helping students to focus on the key concepts. Clinical correlations help students understand the clinical implications of embryology.

Langman's Essential Medical Embryology is packaged with Simbryo, Version 1.1, the popular embryology animations CD-ROM that shows three-dimensional embryologic development over time.
